Hi fellow NCMA RI members.
As you hopefully noticed in our newsletter (thanks for the wonderful job Amy!) we have some opening on the Executive Board for the coming program year that begins in July. Although I am thankful that we have had a couple of volunteers come forward or be nominated to fill some of the positions, I do wish to insure that anyone who may be interested has the opportunity to participate. One of my key focus areas and part of our recently completed Strategic Plan is to increase the breadth of our reach throughout Rhode Island and to expand the participation level within our membership.
We will have vacancies for Secretary, Program Coordination, Web Site, and President Elect (who would move to President when my term expires). In addition, although we have wonderful volunteers leading our other area of focus such as Membership, Education and Training, and Marketing, I know that those Directors would be happy to have any help you would be willing to provide.
The commitment is your time and I do not want to trivialize what that means. Everyone of us has a full plate, so in asking you to consider this, I recognize what the impact is. You are all members of this organization, I believe, because you think that there is a need to continue tot improve the way in which we go about the business of managing contracts. I am hoping that belief will inspire you to step up to the challenge.
If you can find the time to attend a monthly meeting from September through June, ( we do slow down during the summer) and then bring your skills, experience and thoughts to bear on some of the agenda items and events we work on, then you are an excellent candidate to be a Director on the Board.
If you have the interest and desire, but not quite that much time, please let me know also as your help at a lunch, or one of our annual events is also crucial to our success.
I ask you to let me know of your interest by April 27th. If you have any questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to ask.
On behalf of all the NCMA RI members, I thank you in advance for your consideration.
Senior Vice President
Director, Government Operations
